I am looking for the best quality natto starter, does anyone have a clue what website sells them? I imagine a good quality starter would last indefinitely and never stop repopulating just like the difference between good quality milk kefir... (more)

Realize, there is K2 in liver and in egg yolks, don't stress the K2. If you can find some Natto, great. If not, it's not that much of an issue anyway - eat more eggs and liver. Like you I spent a bit of time trying to find somewhere to get... (more)

FYI: To avoid any paleo die-hards from nagging me on the beans not being paleo subject, fermentation breaks down anti-nutrients into available nutrients. So I was watching a video of Dr. Mercola interviewing the wild fermentation specialist... (more)

While natto bacteria are a very common soil bacteria, I don't think it is quite accurate to say they occur naturally on all beans. They are very common in soil where soy beans have been grown; not so much so in other soils. They are... (more)

I know the name of the strain of bacterial used to ferment natto, the Japanese soybean dish full of vitamin k2, is Bacillus Natto. I can find cultures of it available online. However I would like to use it to ferment another type of food than... (more)

Glib, The jury is still out on whether MK-4 is better or MK-7, but many have still made up their minds and claim their favorite is best. Here are the bullet points of their arguments. Blood levels of K-2 go up much faster, more, and... (more)

The recommended supplemental dosage of PQQ is 10-20 mg a day. You would have to eat 350-700 pounds of natto a day to reach that level of PQQ intake. (Source.) How is such radically unnatural intake of this vitamin justifiable? (more)

I avoid soy however this is fermented soy. It seems to have some amazing properties. Does fermenting make it safe? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Natto

I used to eat it a couple times a day and actually enjoy it. I used to order it in sushi restaurants sometimes and the chefs will ask me if I'm part Japanese/crazy. A few of them said they think it's disgusting. The fermentation process will... (more)

After reading about natto, I expected it to be a horrendous food that I'd be able to choke down once a week at best, but I had some earlier and found it to be completely inoffensive. I'm now thinking about eating it every day, but I wonder if it... (more)

I wouldn't worry about getting too much K2 out of natto, I would rather worry about the phytoestrogens and lectins in the soy as well as its goitrogenic properties. Even though it's fermented, some nasties are just very hard to eliminate... (more)

(for those that partake)... how does everyone eat (or take) their natto. I hear it's an 'acquired taste'...

I never ate natto until a year ago. I heard such bad things about its taste and smell that I just assumed I wouldn't be able to handle it! (I don't eat things like blue cheese or foie gras.) It took about a week to get used to its gooey... (more)

So I finally found a store that carries Natto...and I found it to be incredibly boring. Sorry to those who love it, but compared to sour cream, kombucha, or sauerkraut I'm trying to figure out if I need to spice it up some how. Any suggestions? (more)

Standard (even for Japanese (and when you buy it in Japanese markets, you get two packets included in each serving)) is to stir in a bit of hot mustard and soy sauce. Make sure your mustard isn't using flour for thickener and substitute coconut... (more)

I live in Japan, where the food's a little different, and I've devised a typical day's paleo menu I think I can afford. Will it make me healthy? What is lacking? What is redundant? 6 jumbo eggs 2.5 cups of coconut milk 4 ounces of Spam 50 grams... (more)
